KIRKUS REVIEW

*This is perhaps the best of the career kitten stories- from the point of view of text. And the Harry Lees pictures are beguiling, too, though not quite so fascinatingly detailed as the pictures in Grocery Kitten. This is the story of Calico, who came to live in the textile dye factory, who loved the noise and bustle of getting things done. Children will like this part of it too (as well as the adventures of the kitten) for there's an interesting and revealing behind the scenes view of the pleasing security of a working routine. The factory workers who make friends with Calico are natural people, their talk and their work gives lots of information as to what goes on at the plant. Calico's adventures take him into the staid serenity of a home and he is desperately homesick for the factory excitement and manages to find his way back. Sturdily bound in cloth, full of real action pictures, some in color- this should prove another substantial favorite.
